Governor Abbott issued an executive order for all Texans to Stay Home, Stay Safe and to follow the essential services and essential personnel guidelines by the Center of Disease and Control. In this order, all schools statewide will remain closed through Monday, May 4.

To stay in line with the Governor's order, LHISD will extend school closure until May 4, 2020. The decision to close schools is never made lightly, and we know the impact of this closure is far-reaching. Please understand Governor Abbott's decision was made based upon the current reality of COVID-19 activity and the recommendations and information provided by DSHS and the CDC. The safety and well-being of our community and the nation is the first priority.

Please continue to practice social distancing and healthy habits. This virus is affecting more and more people in Central Texas. Stay safe and stay home so that we have the possibility to open our doors again.
